Numbers 13


13:1 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
13:2 Send thou men, that they may search the land of Canaan,
 which I give to the children of Israel: of every tribe of their
 fathers shall ye send a man, every one a ruler among them.
13:3 And Moses, by the commandment of the LORD, sent them from
 the wilderness of Paran: all those men [were] heads of the
 children of Israel.
13:4 And these [were] their names: Of the tribe of Reuben,
 Shammua the son of Zaccur.
13:5 Of the tribe of Simeon, Shaphat the son of Hori.
13:6 Of the tribe of Judah, Caleb the son of Jephunneh.
13:7 Of the tribe of Issachar, Igal the son of Joseph.
13:8 Of the tribe of Ephraim, Oshea the son of Nun.
13:9 Of the tribe of Benjamin, Palti the son of Raphu.
13:10 Of the tribe of Zebulun, Gaddiel the son of Sodi.
13:11 Of the tribe of Joseph, [namely], of the tribe of
 Manassah, Gaddi the son of Susi.
13:12 Of the tribe of Dan, Ammiel the son of Gemalli.
13:13 Of the tribe of Asher, Sethur the son of Michael.
13:14 Of the tribe of Naphtali, Nahbi the son of Vophsi.
13:15 Of the tribe of Gad, Geuel the son of Machi.
13:16 These [are] the names of the men whom Moses sent to
 explore the land. And Moses called Oshea the son of Nun
 Jehoshua.
13:17 And Moses sent them to explore the land of Canaan, and
 said to them, Go ye up this [way] southward, and ascend the
 mountain:
13:18 And see the land, what it [is]; and the people that dwell
 therein, whether they [are] strong or weak, few or many;
13:19 And what the land [is] that they dwell in, whether it [is]
 good or bad; and what cities [they are] that they dwell in,
 whether in tents, or in strong holds;
13:20 And what the land [is], whether it [is] fertile or barren,
 whether there is wood in it, or not. And be ye of good courage,
 and bring of the fruit of the land. Now the time [was] the time
 of the first ripe grapes.
13:21 So they went up, and searched the land from the wilderness
 of Zin to Rehob, as men come to Hamath.
13:22 And they ascended by the south, and came to Hebron; where
 Ahiman, Sheshai, and Talmai, the children of Anak, [were]. (Now
 Hebron was built seven years before Zoan in Egypt.)
13:23 And they came to the brook of Eshcol, and cut down from
 thence a branch with one cluster of grapes, and they bore it
 between two upon a staff; and [they brought] of the
 pomegranates, and of the figs.
13:24 The place was called the brook Eshcol, because of the
 cluster of grapes which the children of Israel cut down from
 thence.
13:25 And they returned from exploring the land after forty
 days.
13:26 And they went and came to Moses, and to Aaron, and to all
 the congregation of the children of Israel, to the wilderness
 of Paran, to Kadesh; and brought back word to them, and to all
 the congregation, and showed them the fruit of the land.
13:27 And they told him, and said, We came to the land whither
 thou sentest us, and surely it floweth with milk and honey; and
 this [is] the fruit of it.
13:28 Nevertheless, the people [are] strong that dwell in the
 land, and the cities [are] walled, [and] very great: and
 moreover, we saw the children of Anak there.
13:29 The Amalekites dwell in the land of the south: and the
 Hittites, and the Jebusites, and the Amorites, dwell in the
 mountains: and the Canaanites dwell by the sea, and by the
 coast of Jordan.
13:30 And Caleb stilled the people before Moses, and said, Let
 us go up at once, and possess it; for we are well able to
 overcome it.
13:31 But the men that went up with him said, We are not able to
 go up against the people; for they [are] stronger than we.
13:32 And they brought an evil report of the land which they had
 searched to the children of Israel, saying, The land through
 which we have passed to search it, [is] a land that eateth up
 its inhabitants; and all the people that we saw in it, [are]
 men of a great stature.
13:33 And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, [who come]
 of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers,
 and so we were in their sight.
